While the University traces its roots to 1853 and the establishment of the state-funded East Florida Seminary, UF/IFAS traces its roots to the Morrill Act of 1862 which established the Land Grant university system. On July 2, 1862, President Abraham Lincoln signed into law what is generally referred to as the Land Grant Act. The new piece of legislation introduced by U.S. Representative Justin Smith Morrill of Vermont granted to each state 30,000 acres of public land for each Senator and Representative under apportionment based on the ...

Pest Control: Tiny flying insects, Large swarms of non-biting ...
I live in Oviedo Florida, with a man-made 4 acre pond in the back. My pool screen is covered with tiny (6 mm x 1 mm)) long flying bugs. They seem to be seasonal, maybe an earlier stage of some other bug. They are  slender with larger torso, transparent light tan colored with a faint light green inside.  I spay them with strong diluted Triazinon and they fly away in confusion like a cloud of mosquitoes, only to relocate on another nearby section of screen. They fly all around me but very few land on me amidst their cloud.  When I soak them, them seem to die immediatley, maybe due only to the water,  but ...
Pest Control: boathouse pests, charles apperson, stephen bambara
We have just built a boathouse.  There is a lift with a pontoon.  It is made from concrete with vinyl siding.  There are pesky flying insects that do land on the boathouse and on the boat.  they are about the size of a mosquito.  they do not seem to bite. They are dark in color and very slender. They are everywhere.  My son is next door and has an older boathouse.  He has no bugs like these.  He does have a bird nest, though.  They seem to come from the eaves but I'm not sure. Any ideas.  Oh yes. we live in North Alabama on Shoals Creek which is off of the Tennessee River. ...
